Product Description

Shirakura Ebi Dama - Basic feed for shrimps and crayfish is a herbal product. It is high in amino acids, natural vitamins and minerals, for health, growth, colourfulness and good reproduction of the animals.

Main ingredients
Seaweed, spirulina, chlorella, natural vitamins and minerals.

Shrimps are omnivores and as such they also need animal proteins, which they usually find in mostly invisible microorganisms and microbes in the substrate. In order to grant a sufficient supplies of such microbes, Takayuki Shirakura developed the rearing feed Chi ebii, which serves as a nutrition basis not only for baby shrimps but also for microorganisms and thus support a healthy development of the population. These little helpers furthermore dispose of feed residues and excrements of the shrimps which lie deeper down the substrate and thus clean the substrate. If feed residues and excrements are not removed, shrimps may die from the evolving poisonous substances. Baby shrimps are particularly at risk. This is the reason why Ebi Dama feed by Shirakura has a very firm consistency. It will not fall apart during feeding and sink down to the floor unused.

In relatively newly set-up aquariums in which the substrate is not yet sufficiently active, it is recommended to add high-quality feed, for example artemia, once a week. However, it is also recommended to use Chi Ebii - rearing feed from the very beginning since it significantly accelerates the genesis of the important microorganisms and microbes.


Feed Ebi Dama twice a day in small amounts, but only as much as the shrimps can eat within one or two hours. If all shrimps are full, feed leftovers should as a principle be removed from the aquarium.

  1. Great for New Community Tank 5 Star Review

    Posted by on 16th Jan 2014

    I bought these soon after I mail-ordered some red cherry shrimp for my new 55 gallon community tank. The shrimp went right for them, and they have their amazing red color back after paling significantly during shipping. My kuhli loaches also love to nibble on them, and they're a great overall bottom feeder food. I'm also inclined to believe that they are indeed feeding microorganisms in the tank, as I have two bamboo shrimp who have started to fan instead of picking through the substrate. Excellent product.
